St. Thomas Of Course (Part 2)

Standard

Here it is guys! The final post from my St. Thomas extravaganza! Β Not gonna lie, flipping through these photos again, brought the memories right back, as I sit in my hot apartment here in Harlem. I can never fully explain how much fun I had in the Virgin Islands, but being able to celebrate my birthday with my closest friend, was the sweetest thing in the world. Hope you enjoy the pics from the Wing Festival, my birthday in St. John, ferry ride pics and a few more beach pics!

#AboutLastNight

Standard

July 4th may have been two weeks ago, but you still want to see the pictures don’t ya? Well, here they are for #AboutLastNight! So fortunate to spend the holiday with new and old friends out in Long Island. The host, Brandon, was great and there was good food, good music, and of course fireworks! Enjoy.

St. Thomas, Need I Say More?

Gallery

Well, I’ve finally managed to clear some room from my media library to bring you part one of my St. Thomas vacation recap. I have decided to really come through the hundreds of pictures I took while away and present an edited photo collage of my adventures.

While it has been a month since my trip, I can still smell the water, hear the birds, and feel the salty ocean water on my skin. The only thing I miss more than the breathtaking views and the overwhelming aura of peace and relaxation is Cynthia.

I have to admit it’s pretty awesome to have a friend in this corner of the world. Yes, of course, I miss her, but getting to see her in her new home: thriving, happy, effervescent and carefree, was wonderful to see. My wanderlust has definitely been piqued and I am now thinking ahead to my next great adventure for 2016. I’m thinking Italy! But until then, here are photos from the first three days of my trip on St. Thomas proper. Enjoy πŸ™‚

Messenger Mickens: A Photo Diary

Standard

A while ago,Β I completed my NYU messenger run, and what a gorgeous week it turned out to be. Sure there were some overcast days, but the days were warm (it’s all relative) and the sun made an appearance ever so often. I decided to do a “Day In the Life Of…” photo diary while on the job (shhh) so you could get a sense of what I experienced each day πŸ™‚

Wandering Wednesday

Gallery

On this rainy Wednesday in New York, my Wandering post will take you up 6th Avenue from 42nd street/Bryant Park to 59th Street/Columbus Circle. I took all of these pictures last Friday night when I left the office, the weather was gorgeous, with a light breeze, and there weren’t that many people around. My walk also led to a great conversation with my Dad, because when he was a boy he used to work in the Diamond District, which is found on 47th street between 6th and 5th avenue. Hope you enjoy!
